PAD #16

When death came knocking,
I wasn't home
and so my love left.
I wait now, wondering
when the next knock will come
and what it brings for me.
Life or death,
I only know the door
will open.

The prompt for day 16 was (oh, joy!) death. I really didn't want to write about that again, and it shows.

The painting is Thinking About Death by Freida Kahlo.

I think I might have taken a pass on this one, were I you... Not that the poem wasn't good.

I think this was very good and I'm sure it was difficult for you.

Whew! Great. Reminded me of...well, he didn't die, but he sure took a beating. Love love the opening, and the poem, and the picture of Frida. She's still my idol, and this is one of my favorite painings. Love you, Cyn. Still.
